 The aforementioned TechSci Research report, “India Construction Chemicals Market, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2010 – 2020”, suggests that the India construction chemicals market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 15% during 2015-2020, due to increasing construction activities and rising government and private investments in infrastructure and real estate sectors. In addition, 100% FDI policy of the government in real estate industry is further anticipated to boost growth in India construction chemicals market during 2015 – 2020. Changing consumer lifestyles, especially of the country’s robustly expanding middle class population, is driving demand for quality construction of residential structures, thereby augmenting demand for construction chemicals in India and this ties in very well with the processes being undertaken by the Indian government.
